Location: French Lick, Indiana
On the heels of last year’s successful event with over $100 million dollars’ worth of collector vehicles on display, planning is well underway for the 2014 Concours d’Elegance at French Lick Resort. Formerly known as the Louisville Concours d’Elegance, the world-class event will bring together top exhibitors, seasoned judges and enthusiastic sponsors to celebrate the “competition of elegance” — and to raise money for Kosair Children’s Hospital.

Some of the rarest, most elegant and historic collector cars from across the country will be showcased on the beautiful grounds of French Lick Resort on Sunday, October 5. As a unique feature this year, the world-class Concours will celebrate two distinct marques: Indiana automobiles and cars from Shelby American.

It seems fitting that the Indiana destination, which was recently named Best Historic Resort in America by Historic Hotels of America, would want to honor its home state and its contributions to automotive history. Guests might be surprised to learn that the Hoosier state once boasted over 300 automobile manufacturers, more than even Detroit!

The world-class Concours d’Elegance at French Lick Resort will also feature everything from Motorcycles to Super Cars, with a mix of American and European classics. (See full list of classes below.) Nomination forms are available online or by contacting Pat Palmer Ball [email protected]

The 3,000 acre resort, which features two historic hotels, four golf courses, a pair of world-class spas and more, will be the site for the full schedule of weekend activities. Highlights include a Saturday morning driving tour and a Mad Men themed gala on Saturday, October 4.

Special room rates and Louisville Concours d’Elegance packages are available at West Baden Springs and French Lick Springs Hotels.

Saturday, October 4

Meander the beautiful, and surprisingly hilly, back roads of Southern Indiana on this automotive adventure. We'll pay a visit to a local collector's garage and enjoy lunch at an area favorite.


Our 2013 Great Gatsby Gala was a smashing success! Some guests even claimed it was the best gala they ever attended at ANY Concours event.
